Notes for Lecture 8
Waves, Sound
We have derived the wave equation in the last lecture, and it was good to do so. My
sense is that every student will be able to understand it, if the derivation is studied
quietly.
From the wave equation, we could precisel

Waves
In the previous lecture, we touched upon the most generic two features of a wave.
They can be also summarized this way: a wave is an emergent property of many
particles. What this means is that when many particles act in coordina

SHO examples
Before we start on waves, two important examples of the SHO are worth our attention.
One is a pendulum (simple or physical), and the other is a torsion pendulum. We
start with the latter.
